Yume-no-Ki is a pension near Lake Yamanaka offering griddle-cooked dishes and wine made with seasonal ingredients. We have been featured numerous times on television, in magazines and elsewhere.
Visitors can enjoy views from their guestrooms of Mount Fuji, Japan's tallest mountain, and savor griddle-cooked meat made using "Wine Beef" (beef from cattle fed on grape pomace) accompanied by Yamanashi Prefecture wines carefully selected by the sommelier, who is also the pension owner. Moreover, the entire facility is non-smoking to ensure that each customer enjoys the crisp, clean air of the highlands.

Fair prices and special bonus gifts
Griddle-cooked dishes, which are normally quite expensive, are included in the lodging price here at Yume-no-Ki. Female lodgers will receive a stylish set of oil blotting paper or a bookmark—free of charge!
Koshu Wine Beef
From cattle raised to provide high-quality red meat and rich, sweet flavor
Because cattle is raised on polyphenol-rich grape pomace feed, Koshu Wine Beef undergoes less oxidation than beef from cattle raised on standard feed, resulting in more tender, redder meat. This also reduces unpleasant beef smells, making for beef that is easier to eat rare.
Griddle-cooked Rainbow Trout
Rainbow trout à la meunière, raised in the famous spring waters of Oshino Village at the foot of Mount Fuji
Original-recipe Hot Sandwich for Breakfast

Griddle-cooked Dishes and Wine Yume-no-Ki Pension
Located in a quiet area just inland from the shore of Lake Yamanaka, Yume-no-Ki sits on a property measuring about 700 tsubo (2,314 square meters / 24,908 square feet) in size. It was opened in 2010 by a married couple with experience in hotel work, and boasts views of Mount Fuji from every guestroom.
Although the surrounding area offers few dining options for visitors, Yume-no-Ki has you covered with griddle-cooked dishes made using local, seasonal ingredients, complemented by Yamanashi Prefecture wines. Moreover, facility offers a wonderfully private setting.
The property was once home to about 100 Japanese larch trees which were felled to construct the pension facility. The name Yume-no-Ki, which means "tree of dreams," was chosen in reflection of the owners' efforts to establish deep roots in the area and achieve growth reaching up to the sky just as the trees have, while also giving thanks to the trees themselves.
Yume-no-Ki was designed to provide comfortable, inviting spaces for lodging guests, and to convey all the charms that Yamanashi Prefecture has to offer. We look forward to your visit!
